- Nose 22 /25 - well peat that goes without saying but in a fairly gentle way, burnt toast a hint of marmalade, sea salt, charcoal and salted beef.
- Taste 21 /25 - cigar ash, grapefruit mint, green apple and damp hay.
- Finish 22 /25 - of medium length, the peat rumbles away.
- Balance 22 /25 - overall it’s nicely balanced. it’s clearly aimed and Laphroaig newbies as it’s far more accessible than the mega TCP releases. It won’t necessarily suit the Laphroaig Loons but I rather enjoyed it.
- Total 87 /100
